New Mindful Choices fo Well-Being therapy groups are now being formed. Mindful Choices Therapy offers a holistic, action-oriented process of choosing and creating well-being using proven methods for transformational change. We developed Mindful Choices Therapy during three decades of clinical practice. A cornerstone of our method is the systematic mastery of 10 interrelated Mindful Choices:
• Breath awareness and retraining • Beginning and ending your day peacefully • Mindful eating • Cultivating mindfulness • Self-reflection • Living your values • Intentional relating • Mindful movement • Utilizing Mindful Choices tools • Self-Acceptance & Self-compassion
Mindful Choices Therapy blends cognitive neuroscience, Buddhist psychology, contemplative traditions, mindfulness based stress reduction, and mindfulness-based behavioral therapies. The 14 week group will help you move from a life of too much stress and anxiety (what the we call “dis-ease”) to a life of well-being, balance, and a deep sense of purpose. Instead of acting on autopilot, falling back on habits learned over a lifetime, you will learn how to mindfully make clear choices aimed at creating the life you truly want. Mindful awareness is the starting point for making great choices. Mindful Choices Therapy provides the tools for transforming those great choices into powerful and effective habits.
As one professional book review stated: “The Shearers provide a detailed, practical, and compassionate approach that wakes us up from the trance of autopilot and catapults us toward empowered choices and habits that can free us from depression, anxiety, and so many other dis-eases.”
Group members will be guided through a 14 week experience utilizing our book Mindful Choices for Well-Being, plus a workbook designed to enhance mastery of the 10 “Mindful Choices.” Additionally, between session experiences are provided by way of interactive online tools. The Group experience includes training in Mindfulness Meditation.
Groups meet for two hours on a weekday evening, and continue for 14 weeks with the exception of holiday weeks. Each group is limited to nine participants. For more information contact Dr. William C. Shearer at wcshearer930@Gmail.com, or text message your request to (951) 235-3409.
